Over on CreativIndie, Derek Murphy has set up a monthly short story competition. This is a wonderfully simple way to get people to collaborate without knowing; the net outcome could be a published ebook with your story included! The post is: Short Story Contest and in this Derek describes all the upsides to taking part – he markets, produces the book and so forth. The downside to the individual is that you lose some control but I think this is fine. The idea is a powerful spin on the idea I have for collaboration a couple of months ago – Wanted: Short story writers for a collaboration.
I will definitely look to take part in this – see you on the first Saturday of August!
